Our StorySCORE Domestic was founded in 1992, and has since helped nearly 70,000 people serve through short-term mission trips. Originally founded as Youth On Mission, we merged with our longtime ministry partner (SCORE International) in 2012 thanks to God’s sovereign plan and provision. After the merger, we continued our service in various regions across the U.S., maintaining our passion for seeing people reached with the Gospel through the work of short-term mission teams. SCORE International was originally founded in 1984 by Ron Bishop as a sports ministry, but soon expanded to a global missions ministry. SCORE International and SCORE Domestic share a common goal: equipping and mobilizing mission teams to fulfill the great commission and share God’s love through short-term, group mission experiences.
Mission & VisionWe exist to glorify God through missions in obedience to the great commission. Our vision is to point one million Americans to Christ by evangelizing, engaging people in missions, equipping and empowering others to steward their giftedness, and expressing the Gospel by meeting needs.
Our PhilosophySCORE Domestic is intentional about sharing the Gospel, equipping mission teams to serve and go, and meeting both spiritual and physical needs. It is our primary goal to identify where God is at work and join Him there. Our mission teams invest in strategic communities, serving as reinforcements to the work the Lord is already doing. The heart of our ministry is simple: we want to be a catalyst for lifelong change in people’s lives. This is accomplished through leading others to saving faith in Christ, disciplining them, and lifting them up - out of both physical and spiritual poverty. Focusing on intentional thoughts and actions, we work directly with group leaders as they train their teams. This partnership ensures we provide the kind of service that benefits a community long after the trip concludes. With domestic missionaries in cities and towns across the country, SCORE mission teams have engaged hosts and are uniquely equipped to be effective.
